Hurtling up the west side highway in a chauffeured Chevy Tahoe, JC Chasez—formerly a member of the world’s most bombastic boy band, ‘Nsync, and currently at work on a solo album, Schizophrenic—has already made it clear that he isn’t afraid to lip synch or cuss like a thug. Later he’ll even dance on a banquette or two. But right now he’s singing along with Nelly Furtado on the radio. “I’m like a bird, I’ll only fly away, I don’t know where my home is…,â€￾ he purrs, gesticulating and squinting on the more hot-blooded stanzas. The other passengers in the car aren’t singing with him, but Pete Kelly (the friendly driver), Lonnie Jones (the friendly, 300-and-something-pound bodyguard) and the rest of the gang are still having fun. It seems impossible to not have fun hanging out with JC Chasez (that’s sha-zay to you bub). He’s famous, rich, and exceedingly sweet.
Back at the Canal Room in Tribeca, it was photo-op city. Hip-hop fans were raising hell at a record-release party for scenester DJ Mark Ronson, and JC—clad in a navy blue Fred Perry tracksuit, Hanes tank top and Kangol cap—was at ease in a sea of weed smoke, women and celebs. Mos Def snuck through the VIP section unnoticed by fans, R&B starlet Tweet mugged for paparazzi, and singer Maxwell looked very sexual-chocolate in a choo-choo-train hat and snug trousers.
Lonnie Jones positioned himself beside JC at the beginning of the evening and rarely left his side after that. “I keep people from bothering him and help things stay cool,â€￾ Lonnie says. He likes his job. “Working for JC couldn’t be any easier. I can’t think of anybody who is more low maintenance.â€￾ Indeed, the pop star—who started out in the dance world battling at NYC clubs when he was 15 years old, the was cast in the Mickey Mouse Club with Britney, Christina, and Justin—seems carefree. Since ‘nsync delivered their fourth album, Celebrity, two years ago, JC has started to work for himself. The release date for his solo debut keeps getting pushed back, and it’s not clear why. But whatever the reason, it doesn’t matter tonight. He’s ringmaster of a 15-person entourage, just going along for the ride. When people ask him about plans, he’s reticent. “ask Noak,â€￾ he says, referring to his friend, nightlife lion Noah Tepperberg. “Noah knows what’s next.â€￾

What a difference 40 blocks makes. If we were club-hopping in Times Square, partying with JC would be …complicated. Boy-band fever has wilted since 1999, but you can bet your Good Charlotte concert T-shirt that if they spotted JC, preteen tourists would scream until their heads, like, totally popped off, and Lonnie Jones would need to lay the smack down. Downtown, there is less titillation. There are, after all, places where people don’t notice a teenybop pet. “If I’m drinking a beer at an Irish bar on the corner, nobody gives a @#%$ who I am,â€￾ JC says. “At parties it’s not usually a problem.â€￾ But that doesn’t mean it’s never a problem. “Sometimes people notice and it can get weird,â€￾ the 27-year old admits: “It only takes one girl to set it off around a party: ‘He’s from nsync! Oooh, oooh’ At a place like this, it’s easier. People might notice who I am, but nobody makes a fuss.â€￾
Another reason JC gets fuss-free partying is because Lonnie Jones, Pete, Jive guy Carlos Vega and Carlos Melgajeco (JC’s best friend, roommate and manager) take fine care of him. Tepperberg, who cuts through velvet ropes lickety-split, is also an asset. Finding more fun is never a problem.
“Noah and Jason hook me up,â€￾ he says gesturing to Tepperberg and his partner Jason Strauss, who met JC last summer at the Tepperberg-helmed PlayStation2 Hotel in the Hamptons. Indeed, Noah’s a glue that holds parties together, pouring drinks for a pack of pretty girls. (Alexis is a writer for People, Kim is a model/personal trainer, Saskia plays professional soccer—there’s also Morgan, Mary Ann and a few others.) Sean Paul’s “Get Busyâ€￾ thumps loudly; $1,000-per-hour DJs label this genre “party classics and hip-hopâ€￾; everybody else knows it as “wedding music.â€￾
“You wanna bounce?â€￾ JC asks as the party dies down at Canal Room. It does seem like a good time to bounce. On our way outside, Lonnie barks, “We’re hitting the doorâ€￾ to what seems like no one. Then I notice a cord squirreling from his ear and a wrist microphone inside his big sleeve. The Tahoe is idling a few steps from the door.
When we land at Lotus, JC is almost forgotten in the hustle. “Hey, can I get out?â€￾ he asks, trapped in the backseat of the truck. “Guys? Hey, let me out.â€￾ Inside the club, rich yuppies disco dance, and waitresses are supremely attentive. A song called “Get Lowâ€￾ by Lil’ Jon and the Eastside Boyz starts playing, and people cheer. JC stands, steps onto a banquette and starts grooving and singing along. Later, he bemoans the track choice. “’Get Low’ is an amazing song, but the DJ playedthe clean version. The good parts were bleeped out,â€￾ he says. “In the real version the lyrics are ‘To the window, to the wall/To the sweat drip down my balls.’ It’s awesome, totally funny.â€￾ Sweaty balls, sure thing!
It’s odd to see Justin Timberlake’s wingman partying like mad. He’s super-duper famous, yet people don’t really know who he is, and that seems to work out well for him. Heavy-duty celebs like Nicole Kidman and Naomi Watts might guzzle Veuve at P. Diddy’s private after-parties and loaf around Soho House every once in a while, but they don’t have this much fun in public. Maybe they’re too famous, maybe they’re too boring, maybe they’re just over it. JC isn’t. He’s dancing and chatting, and it’s just right—until it’s not, at which point we decide it’s time to leave.
When the bill is given to JC, Lonnie swiftly whips out a flashlight and shines it on the slip of paper which JC signs quickly before stepping to the door. Outside Bungalow 8 a few minutes later, somebody says, “Great. Now we can go and listen to the same music we just heard.â€￾ It’s true. There’s more Sean Paul, George Michael, more “Hey Yaâ€￾ by Andre 3000 inside. It’s almost 4 a.m. and the Jive publicist is cavorting with his co-worker Tanielle. Amy Sacco’s chatting with a mysterious white-haired man in a booth. JC’s friends swear they recognize the man, but they can’t quite place his face.
It’s hard not to be smitten with his scene, where people dance hard and smile big, as if the world is all beach houses and heli-pads, with no problems to deal with. Case in point: the Bee Gees “stayin alive.â€￾ When this song comes on at other clubs (barring, say, Polly Esther’s and Culture Club), guests typically abandon the dancefloor in revolt. How pedestrian, they think. When it starts playing tonight, the crowd gets busier then ever. They love “Stayin’ Aliveâ€￾ so much it’s almost punk rock. Embracing the weathered Saturday Night Fever theme is the pop life. There’s no pretense here, not tonight. And that might be the coolest thing of all.
------------------------------------------------------------

“Working for JC couldn’t be any easier. I can’t think of anybody who is more low maintenance.â€￾

thats my boy :nod: :lol:

I absolutely loved that article. It was like I was in all the action! :lol: Why'd they have to throw Justin's name in there though.

He’s super-duper famous, yet people don’t really know who he is, and that seems to work out well for him. Heavy-duty celebs like Nicole Kidman and Naomi Watts might guzzle Veuve at P. Diddy’s private after-parties and loaf around Soho House every once in a while, but they don’t have this much fun in public. Maybe they’re too famous, maybe they’re too boring, maybe they’re just over it. JC isn’t.

And THAT is why I love this man. Couldn't have said it better myself. :clap:

And why ya leavin me zoe?! :( :cry:

and some of em just idealize him a little too much
im a fan and i support him but im not gonna put him on a platform (what the hell is that expression in english :confused: :lol: )
i guess after watchin the popoddysey dvd i know i like that justin better than the one hes bein now too, he seemed more appreciative ?
but thats just my opinion and yeah still support him as an artist just not as a celebrity lol
and yeah i cant keep postin those thoughts
cuz they dont see it that way and theyll probably get annoyed
well some of em already are i guess hehe

ill still try to update JC news cuz yeah i just love that mans personality hehe and ive gotta post cuz this board needs some love :nod:

but yeah im goin through some stuff and i need a break from this

oh ash are ya goin to the JC concert?
so jealous :(
im still thinkin he could show up at my jingle ball
cuz there's no

Yeah, I'm goin to see JC :D. I'm not as excited as I thought I would be, but I think its just cuz I'm a little stressed about finishing up school.

But :party: I'm hoping to stalk him into a club, and this article has given me hope, so since he likes to have fun in public, maybe I can cop a feel or two while we dance :lol:
